Importance of Extracting Impacted Wisdom Teeth
If the thought of tooth extraction has your stomach in knots, take heart. You’re not alone. Many people have a misconception about tooth extraction, particularly when it comes to removing wisdom teeth. Contrary to popular opinion, however, wisdom teeth removal is not a complicated, painful treatment. This dental procedure is performed under anesthesia, so patients feel no pain or discomfort during their treatment. If your wisdom teeth are causing problems due to being impacted, you can come to Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, for safe, pain-free wisdom teeth extraction services.
Risks of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are often referred to as your “third molars” that start to come in between your late teen and early adult years. If these molars have no space to grow, they may come through part-way and then become partially impacted. Full wisdom tooth impaction is when they don’t come through the gum line at all. Impacted wisdom teeth put you at risk of numerous dental problems, such as:
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Pain when you bite or chew
- Tooth infections, decay, and gum disease
- Damage to surrounding teeth
- Problems with bite issues
- Cysts around your jaw
To alleviate pain and prevent these problems from occurring, Dr. Rina Kotecha may recommend a wisdom tooth extraction.
Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are not really needed for any specific function in your mouth. If they come through without problems and are not crowding existing teeth, there’s no reason to have them extracted. However, impacted wisdom teeth can potentially derail your oral health by causing serious dental problems. Removing impacted wisdom teeth sooner rather than later can prevent these problems before they start.
